Arroz con Pollo (Rice with Chicken)
Yields: 4-6 servings


  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lb chicken thighs or
        breasts, boneless and
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dark beer
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Instructions:
    1. Coat the chicken in a mixture of flour, 1/2 tsp salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cut thighs or breasts in half if pieces are very large.
    2. Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in the cooker, and brown the chicken about 2 minutes per side on medium-high heat. Remove the chicken and set aside.
    3. Add one more tablespoon of oil to the cooker and add the rice. Cook, stirring frequently, until the rice is brown and puffed.
    4. Stir in onions, garlic, 1 tsp salt, and cumin. Cook until the onions are tender.
    5. Stir in the tomato sauce, beer, and broth. Place the chicken gently on top of the rice mixture.
    6. Close and lock the lid in place. Heat on high until pressure builds and the indicator rod rises.  Turn down the heat when the second white ring appears on the indicator rod, and cook for 7 minutes.
    7. Turn off the heat, and release the pressure by pressing the button on the handle or by running cold water over the lid in the sink. Once all pressure is released, open the lid.
    8. Fluff the rice with a fork before serving.
